Here’s your first look at the OnePlus 2 smartphone

The OnePlus 2 smartphone refuses to stay out of the news, even as the date of its unveiling inches closer day by day. But while we’ve been able to find out details regarding its specs from official and unofficial sources, we were still not treated to any images showcasing its exteriors.

That has changed now thanks to China’s wireless regulation body, TENAA. Images of the OnePlus 2 have been shared by it, giving us our first look at the upcoming device. The rear of this phone seems familiar, with the company’s logo forming its highlight and the sandstone material surrounding it on all sides.

It has been mentioned before that metal will be present on this OnePlus device in some form or the other. Now, it looks as though it can be expected to make its way only on the side frame. The front of the handset clearly shows the fingerprint scanner that’s has been officially confirmed to form part of the handset’s offerings. Whether it will also act as a physical home button is another question altogether.

As revealed by Phone Arena, the TENAA listing also points out that a 5.5-inch display bearing a 2K resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels will be making its way into the 2. We already know that it will be fueled by a Snapdragon 810 chipset and powered by a 3300mAh battery.

A USB Type-C connector, an Adreno 430 GPU and 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM are three of its other highlights, but a new revelation is that its 13MP rear camera may well ship with laser autofocus for quick focusing. Selfies and video calling on this OnePlus device will be taken care of by an 8MP front camera.
